Stinkfish: Colorful Street Artist Hits Chile

street art chile mural stinkfish 8

Stinkfish is a street artist hailing from the country of Colombia. Throughout his artistic life he has painted murals around the South American continent. Drawing inspiration from photos of people, Stinkfish creates faces with his colorful touch. Stinkfish was most recently in Chile where he did a series of new murals on the streets of Santiago, Valparaiso, La Serena, San Pedro and Antofagasta.

Asked how he chooses his subjects in his art, Stinkfish told Geo Street Art:

I always carry a photographic camera with me. I like taking pictures of people that catch my attention, most often without them realizing it, without speaking directly with them. From there come out the pictures which I then turn into stencils and took to the streets. I find interesting to make these images travel, images of people I know through the camera and might never see again.
